The webinar will end when the program ends or about 9:00 p.m. This system is interactive with a chat function for all registered users.

Our program on December 3, 2020, will be the always excellent Members’ Photography Show curated by FMWAS Programs Chair Larry Goodman and delivered individually by the FMWAS member photographers themselves.

Zoom Security experts recommend and we agree, so you’ll need to register for the meeting and that means, this time, you must email me at mbrower628@ gmail.com and tell me you want to attend. The registration cut-off is 11/28/20.

Then you only need to wait until five days before the meeting (11/28/20) and you will receive an invitation with a link to join the webinar.
